Game of Checkers

Checkers Artist Amy Crehore

  • Artist Amy Crehore grew up in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, but currently resides in Eugene, Oregon.
  • Amy acquired her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University and has been featured in several pop magazines since 1991.

  • Crehore's desire is to create imagery that blends elements from the past images seen within artist history and new contemporary motifs to which the viewer will be drawn over and over again; the idea is to bring forth memories of past emotions, experiences or circumstances but at the same time, also will also evoke a smile or laughter at the right time and the right place.

  • Amy Crehore feels that her irresistible and lush, dreamy moods may draw the viewer into the essence of the theme and then create a moment of déjà vu when motifs from childhood are reminisced.

  • Crehore's paintings resemble illustrated artistic pages from the colorful and imaginary scenes depicted in children’s book, full of playful animals and motifs that display storybook characteristics, yet the imaginative design and details carry layers of ideas with double or hidden meanings.

  • Amy's Checkers painting displays a definite ‘double entendre’ in its theme ~ there is a game of checkers being played and the young girl is one of the checkers opponents, but several questions are raised as the viewer takes in the casual genre scene with the dressed man wearing a slight smile and gazing at the checkerboard, but at the same time, there is a figure peeking out from behind the curtain ~ who is the other checkers opponent, who is the figure behind the curtain and why is the man standing innocently looking at the game and the checker player?

  • The setting is very simplistic and the mood convivial and relaxed but there’s a hidden tension, an element of mystique, waiting to be resolved.

  • Checkers artist Amy Crehore current affinity has left behind daily scenes as depicted in Checkers and Amy’s motifs now entail imaginary, exotic nudes that are nubile and innocent but still romantic in nature; the females display a serenity and normalcy in the figure’s nakedness, which exudes an erotic mystique through the different poses shared with monkeys, cats, puppets and a variety of musical instruments set landscapes on sandy beaches, blue water and landforms in the background; the golden skinned figures are lost in a dream like world of their own, waiting for the simple beauty of the female form to speak to the viewer’s imagination.

Checkers, painting by Amy Crehore

“…I will only be able to paint a limited number of paintings in my lifetime. My technique is very time consuming because I use a lot of layers of paint to obtain the color intensity and fully realized effects that I desire. I believe in quality over quantity.”
